In an effort to seek more creative alternatives to raise funds, the Western Growers Foundation has entered “A Community Thrives (ACT)” video contest, hosted by the USA Today Network. As our submission, we posted a video about the importance of helping schools create and fund edible school gardens.

You can help by voting for the Foundation’s video on the ACT website! Voting will began on April 12 and ends May 12. We encourage you to return to the ACT website each day to vote for our video, as well as a share it on social media, asking your friends and family to vote.

The Foundation’s average school grant is $1,000; winning this contest could help us fund more than 50 edible school gardens throughout California and Arizona. Our goal for this year is to expand the Foundation so that we impact more kids and develop further interest for careers in ag.


Please Note: It may take a few moments for the video and "Vote" button to load. If you are having trouble viewing the video, please refresh the page.
